2011 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port (half bottle) (Pre-Arrival)
Producer: Taylor Fladgate
Grape Type: Port Blend
96(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2014
Bright medium ruby. Knockout nose combines smoky dark fruits, exotic flowers, spices, dried lavender, minerals and a balsamic nuance. Hugely concentrated, dense and primary but with penetrating minerality giving finesse and precision to the mid-palate. Extremely fine-grained, classy wine with fresh acidity and restrained sweetness. The firmly tannic, mineral-tinged finish features outstanding perfumed persistence and the structure and balance for decades of development in the cellar. Still, this is not as austere in its youth as some recent vintages.
